What does a dog groomer and a medical marijuana dispensary have in common? Besides being services that you cannot get on line, they are both new businesses in the community. Someday, the Canadians may be able to send prescription cannabis to you through the mail, but for now, when they open later this year, you will need to get up to Natures Remedy on Great Road for your meds, and the pooch can have his or her day at the PinkDog Grooming and Spa on Central Street.
While your doggy is being served you could pop in next door at Ripped by Jules for a bit of personal training; never too soon to work on those abs. Or, if you really need to decompress, you might run over to 1 on 1 Self Indulgence Spa & Sanctuary for some pampering for yourself. If you find all this drying you out and you’ve worked up a thirst, head down the road to the local grocer for some of the very best cider in the world pressed in Leominster (home of Johnny Appleseed) by the New England Apple Products Company.
If you need a little company while you get in shape, you can find just the right group at Fitter Female on Main Street. And speaking of groups, lots of folks are gathering at Periwinkle Glassworks on Massachusetts Avenue and learning how to make awesome stained glass works of art and other projects. So, we all know that learning how to do new things never stops, though sometimes it’s the young ones who push the envelope. Take for instance Code Wiz in Westford where children as young as five years old, take one hour lessons in how to write computer code or even build a robot.
Then there is the Silver Unicorn Bookstore on Spruce Street doing a great business by offering something Amazon will never master, the joy of meaningful human interaction, especially for children and the authors who write for them.
But not all is relaxation, learning or catering to our pets. Sometimes we need to think about keeping warm or cool and that’s where Nashoba Air and BoilerWorks comes in. They will even make sure you can generate power when the grid fails you. Some of our needs or the needs of loved ones are more life changing and for that we have TaraVista Behavioral Health on Devens to help us through those trying times.
And there you have it! A blog about commercial real estate, far from the mainstay of our business at Acton Real Estate but an important part of what it takes to make community work. These are some of the businesses we have helped find properties in our area over the years who really needed a Resident Expertsm.
